PORT ANGELES — Marie Routh and her lifepartner, Richard Dicks, used most of their savings moving to Port Angeles from Southern California. “I hated the 90-plus-degree heat there and

loved the cool weather up here,” she said. “I’m a native Californian who didn’t realize I was a Washingtonian at heart.” Dick had a job lined up — but discovered after arriving that it would be a couple of weeks before he could start and that after starting, he wouldn’t get a paycheck for three weeks. They were living hand-to-mouth in a motel room and didn’t have enough money to make it two weeks, let alone three. Richard began looking for a new job. He was hired by a local company to clean, cut and prepare seafood, then later found a betterpaying job with a marine trades business. TURN






Kilmer tries to mend old forest feuds Environmental, timber groups vow rapport

Now in rehab for heart problems, Marie Routh sits with her partner, Richard, and their dog, Cain.

The petition lists Pettit’s largest secured creditors as KeyBank and U.S. Bank, which are owed roughly $11.3 million and $8.8 million, respectively. Budsberg said the total number of listed creditors is “a lot,” though many are listed only as parties of interest because they could have a potential claim against the company.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Environmental and forestry groups often are at odds. Asserting he is addressing that divide, U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer on Tuesday announced the formation of the Olympic Peninsula Collaborative, a group of 16 forestry and environmental groups whose goal is to increase the timber harvest in Olympic National Forest in an environmentally responsible manner. Participants include such diverse groups as the Wild Olympics Campaign, Simpson Lumber Co., the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society and the American Forest Resource Council. Kilmer made the announcement during a 30-minute telephonic news conference that included Matt Comisky of the American Forest Resource Council and Connie Gallant of Quilcene, chairwoman of the Wild Olympics Campaign and newly elected president of the Olympic Forest Coalition.

Mum on Wild Olympics But neither Kilmer nor Gallant would discuss the potential fate of Wild Olympics legislation that has languished in Congress since June 21, 2012, when it was introduced by Sen. Patty Murray and then-Rep. Norm Dicks, Kilm-

er’s predecessor. K i l m e r, D-Gig Harbor, has not taken a stand on Wild Olympics in the 11 months he has been in office. The proKilmer posed Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act would ban logging on more than 126,000 acres of Olympic National Forest by declaring it wilderness. The measure is opposed by many in the forestry industry. “[The Olympic Peninsula Collaborative] is a joint effort to make progress in Olympic National Forest on areas where the parties can agree,” Kilmer said. “There is also broad agreement around our region that there is work that can be done within the confines of the Northwest Forest Plan.”

Funding, projects unclear The group has not identified funding and has no specific potential projects yet. The collaborative’s efforts will include different types of thinning projects to enhance and speed the transition from dense, secondgrowth stands into more complex, older-characteristic stands. The goal is to restore natural forest ecosystems, including fish and wildlife habitat and surrounding ecosystems, Gallant said at the news conference. TURN

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS PENINSULA POLL MONDAY’S QUESTION: It’s the Christmas season! Is it better to give or receive?



By The Associated Press

WILLIAM STEVENSON, 89, a journalist and author who drew on his close ties with intelligence sources to write two bestselling books in the 1970s, A Man Called Intrepid and 90 Minutes at Entebbe, which he dashed off in a room at the Algonquin Hotel in New York, died Nov. 26 in Toronto. His death was confirmed by his son, Andrew. Mr. Stevenson, who was born in London and whose father worked at Bletchley Park, the British headquarters for code breakers during World War II, spent much of his career straddling the worlds of espionage and journalism. Some saw a conflict. He called both pursuits “spycraft.” A Man Called Intrepid, published in 1976, was an admiring portrait of Sir William Stephenson, the masterly Canadian-born intelligence operative who had deep connections to Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II and continued providing information to both Britain and the United States for many years afterward. The author and his subject had similar names and similar interests, and the book grew out of the unusual relationship they developed. Mr. Stevenson, a pilot who flew for the British during World War II, fashioned himself into a foreign correspondent for The Toronto Star after the war. But he never really stopped serving the British government. While in Canada, he met Stephenson the spy, who at times suggested world hot spots where Mr. Stevenson

Receive the writer might cover a story and also forward him intelligence via telegrams. “He would then through his own transmission systems send them on to London with his own observations,” the writer recalled this year in a Canadian radio interview. By the 1960s, Mr. Stevenson was working for the Near and Far East News Group, a propaganda arm of the British government, and becoming increasingly connected in the world of espionage. He also helped produce documentaries for Canadian television and the BBC, sometimes from inside Communist countries or dictatorships, including China. Among the places where he held posts or reported were Hong Kong, New Delhi, Beijing, Kenya and Uganda. The 216-page 90 Minutes at Entebbe was published by Bantam on July 26 — one of the first “instant books,” Bantam boasted. It quickly became Mr. Stevenson’s second bestseller in a matter of months.

alized by the ruling elite. Key to his poetry was his use of the Egyptian dialect, which is shunned by Mr. Negm in 2006 many elite poets but which Mr. Negm exulted in, playing with puns, obscenities and rhyming slang that came straight from Cairo’s slums or from its longneglected rural areas.

TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, Dec. 4, the 338th day of 2013. There are 27 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Dec. 4, 1619, a group of settlers from Bristol, England, arrived at Berkeley Hundred in present-day Charles City County in Virginia, where they held a service thanking God for their safe arrival. Some suggest this was the true first Thanksgiving in America, ahead of the Pilgrims’ arrival in Massachusetts. On this date: ■ In 1783, Gen. George Washington bade farewell to his Continental Army officers at Fraunces Tavern in New York. ■ In 1816, James Monroe of

Virginia was elected the fifth president of the United States. ■ In 1912, Medal of Honor recipient Gregory “Pappy” Boyington, the Marine Corps pilot who led the “Black Sheep Squadron” during World War II, was born in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. ■ In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the dismantling of the Works Progress Administration, which had been created to provide jobs during the Depression. ■ In 1945, the Senate approved U.S. participation in the United Nations by a vote of 65-7. ■ In 1978, San Francisco got its first female mayor as City Supervisor Dianne Feinstein was

named to replace the assassinated George Moscone. ■ In 1984, a five-day hijack drama began as four armed men seized a Kuwaiti airliner en route to Pakistan and forced it to land in Tehran, where the hijackers killed American passenger Charles Hegna. ■ In 1996, the Mars Pathfinder lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Fla., and began speeding toward Mars on a 310 million-mile odyssey. It arrived on Mars in July 1997. ■ Ten years ago: Baltimorebased federal prosecutor Jonathan P. Luna was found dead behind the parking lot of a well-drilling company in Lancaster County, Pa. The

case remains unsolved. ■ Five years ago: For the first time, an NFL game was broadcast live in 3-D to theaters in Boston, New York and Los Angeles. Although the telecast was marred by technical glitches, fans were mostly forgiving as they watched the San Diego Chargers beat the Oakland Raiders 34-7. ■ One year ago: Two Australian radio disc jockeys impersonating Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles made a prank call to a London hospital and succeeded in getting nurses to tell them the condition of the hospitalized Duchess of Cambridge; a nurse who took the call would be found dead three days later in an apparent suicide.

Briefly: World Afghan leaders warned on troops staying BRUSSELS — World diplomats issued a stern warning Tuesday to Afghan leaders in a new effort to help secure the war-torn nation’s future with thousands of foreign forces after 2014. But officials backed off earlier U.S. threats to withdraw all troops if Afghan President Hamid Karzai doesn’t agree to the Karzai offer before the end of the year. NATO officials said, however, that they need a decision, and soon, on continuing a military training mission in Afghanistan through next year. Without clarity, the estimated 50 nations who said they will help transition Afghanistan from 13 years of war will have to start planning how, and when, to send soldiers home. Karzai has tentatively endorsed the deal, but he shocked allies last month when he refused to sign it after it was approved by a council of tribal elders known as the Loya Jirga.

Arafat cause of death PARIS — Extensive reports by French scientists into Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s death have ruled out poisoning by radioactive polonium, his widow said Tuesday. The results contradict earlier findings by a Swiss lab and mean it’s still unclear how Arafat died nine years ago. After a 2012 report that traces of radioactive polonium were found on Arafat’s clothing, Arafat’s widow filed a legal complaint in France seeking an investigation into whether he was murdered. Suha Arafat and her lawyers were notified Tuesday of the results. The Associated Press

Obama says health care law working, vows ‘fight’ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SERVICES

WASHINGTON — Seeking to regroup from his health care law’s disastrous rollout, President Barack Obama on Tuesday insisted that the sweeping overhaul is working and warned Republican critics that he would fight any efforts to strip away its protections. “We’re not repealing it as long as I’m president,” Obama said during a health care event at the White House. “If I have to fight another three years to make sure this law works, then that’s what I’ll do.” Earlier Tuesday, the administration released a 50-state report saying that nearly 1.5 million people were found eligible for

As website problems depressed sign-ups for subsidized private coverage, that safety-net program for low-income people saw a nearly 16 percent increase in states that have agreed to expand it, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. The White House is trying to cast the health care law in a positive light after the first two months of enrollment for the centerpiece insurance exchanges were marred with technical problems.

Meanwhile, insurance companies said some “back-end” aspects of the system continued to malfunction. In particular, insurers cite problems with applications from people who signed up through the website, including erroneous or missing information. White House spokesman Jay Carney said tech experts were working on the processing problems, offering assurances they would be fixed in time for enrollment starting Jan. 1. Critics, led by conservative Republicans, said the website problems foreshadow deeper failings of the law. “It’s not just a broken website; this bill is fundamentally flawed,” House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday.

LAGOS, Nigeria — Entombed at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in an upended tugboat for three days, Harrison Odjegba Okene begged God for a miracle. The Nigerian cook survived by breathing an ever-dwindling supply of oxygen in an air pocket. A video of Okene’s rescue in May — pdn-bubble — that was posted on the Internet more than six months later has gone viral this week. To this day, Okene believes his rescue after 72 hours underwater at a depth of about 100 feet is a sign of divine deliverance. The other 11 seamen aboard the Jascon 4 died.

World: Biden in Beijing to face Chinese president

A MONTANA JUDGE under fire for commenting that a 14-year-old student rape victim appeared “older than her chronological age” said Tuesday that he deserves to be censured but not removed from the bench for the remarks. District Judge G. Todd Baugh said the comments violated judicial ethics rules by failing to promote public confidence in the courts. But he repeated assertions that his comments did not factor into the 30-day sentence he handed the rapist, a teacher, in the case. The office of Montana Attorney General Tim Fox has appealed the sentence as too lenient.

THE U.S. SUPREME Court indicated Tuesday it won’t offer much help to frequent fliers who want to sue when airlines revoke their miles or their memberships. The justices heard the case of a Minnesota rabbi who was stripped of his top-level “platinum elite” status in Northwest’s WorldPerks program because the airline said he complained too much. The man said Northwest did not act in good faith when it cut him off. The airline said the federal deregulation of the airline industry in 1978 rules out most lawsuits like his. The high court said it won’t take up the case.

A PERSON WAS taken into custody Tuesday and weapons have been recovered following a report of a man near the University of New Haven, Conn., campus with what appeared to be a rifle, the school said. After the report came in, the university urged students and staff to stay inside, and several police officers responded to the West Haven school. The university said that police were still searching buildings Tuesday afternoon and that the main campus was still under lockdown while restrictions were lifted for its north and south campuses. The university’s evening classes were canceled.

IN WHAT WAS supposed to be a warm reunion, Vice President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping meet instead today in a climate fraught with tension over an airspace dispute that has put Asia on edge. A day before seeing Xi, Biden stood in Japan and publicly rebuked China for trying to enforce its will on its neighbors, escalating the risk of a potentially dangerous accident. Although Biden had hoped to focus on areas of cooperation, China’s declaration of a new air defense zone above disputed islands in the East China Sea has pitted the U.S. and China against each other, creating a wide gulf.

Federal emergency unemployment compensation is paid in a series of four tiers, with tiers 2 through 4 tied to a state’s jobless rate. Its Tier 3 benefits of nine extra weeks were turned off in August as joblessness dropped below 7 percent, but a slowdown in hiring since then has pushed the rate back up. “It’s ironic that the federal shutdown contributed to the rise in our unemployment rate and caused these benefits to be reactivated,� Employment Security Commissioner Dale Peinecke said in a statement.

Washington’s unemployment rate rose to 7 percent in August, declined to 6.9 percent in September and reached 7 percent again in October. The U.S. rate was 7.3 percent in October. Clallam County’s unemployment rate climbed from a revised 7.8 percent in September to a preliminary 8.4 percent in October, state officials said. Jefferson County saw its jobless rate rise from a revised 7.6 percent in September to a preliminary 8.3 percent in October. Jobless rates, which do not account for those who have left the labor force, have been hovering around 8 percent in both counties since July.

OLYMPIA — The federal government shutdown that lasted for 16 days in October created a benefit for thousands of jobless workers in Washington state. By contributing to a rise in joblessness, it helped push Washington’s threemonth average unemployment rate to 7 percent, which reactivated nine weeks of long-term federally funded emergency unemployment benefits, state officials said this week. Jobless workers in Washington can currently claim up to 54 weeks of unemployment benefits — 26 weeks paid for by the state and 28 weeks paid by the federal government. They get a percentage of their previous wages, or anywhere from $143 to $624 weekly. Starting Sunday, the unemployed will be eligible for 63 weeks of benefits. The change also affects about 11,000 people who exhausted their extended benefits after Aug. 10 and

remain unemployed. State officials said they’re using a combination of emails, robocalls and letters to tell people about the change in benefits, but they also warned that the entire emergency unemploymentcompensation program ends Dec. 28, unless Congress approves an extension.

The trial was postponed in June 2012, November 2012, Feb. 21, May 10 and Aug. 16 for reasons ranging from witness availability, new evidence, a forensic investigation, a psychological analysis and the appointment of new counsel.

Briefly . . . Water talk set tonight in PA lecture series PORT ANGELES — Makah tribal member Micah McCarty will open the Peninsula College Longhouse Lecture Series tonight. He will speak in the Longhouse on the college’s Port Angeles campus from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. about water treaty rights. The event is free and open to the public. McCarty will explore treaty rights at risk and conflicting legislative complications, a “case for the advancement of co-management.” He also will talk about ocean acidification and the near-term implications of eco-activists seeking to challenge fisheries managers with Endangered Species Act, or ESA, listings of species most at risk; the friction of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, or MMPA, and the ESA with upstream carrying capacity for salmon recovery; and how that can be reconciled with current carrying capacity for MMPA species. McCarty is an artist, special assistant to the president on tribal relations at Evergreen College and vice chair of the Governance Committee on the President’s National Ocean Council. There will be two additional presentations in the Longhouse Lecture Series, one in January and one in May, examining intercultural learning through and “Water in Our World.” The Longhouse Lecture Series on water is co-sponsored by the Peninsula College Longhouse and the Shades of Color Club.

SEATTLE — Two workers are suing BNSF, one of the nation’s largest rail companies, saying their same-sex spouses have repeatedly been denied health benefits even though gay marriage is legal in Washington state. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Seattle says BNSF refused to add the spouses of locomotive engineer Michael Hall and conductor Amie Garrand to their plans. BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas said he couldn’t comment on the specifics of

included Jefferson County District Court Judge Jill Landes and support personnel from all of the agencies because victims interact with many levels of law enforcement. “It’s good for us to have a better idea of what people are going through when they come into the police station,” said Port Townsend Police Clerk April Owen. “This is giving us a perspective in dealing with people. How we treat them when they come in can make a difference.” “We deal with mentally ill people very frequently in our jobs, and it’s a good thing to have updated training,” said Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Stringer. “[Amdur] is giving us different tools that we can use.” Amdur said it is important for an officer to understand the motivation of the victim or the perpetrator, assigning behavior categories such as “control freaks” and “drama queens.” He also cautioned against manipulation, which he said is most skillfully done when the manipulated person is not aware of the process.

Manipulation He also advised officers to attempt an understanding of the manipulator’s motivation “whether they are manipulating us because they are in crisis themselves or whether they are just trying to ruin our day.” Amdur worked from a 30-page document and took the entire day to elaborate on each of the points contained.

CONTINUED FROM A1 Marie also started looking for work. For 25 years she had been a medical assistant and medical office manager. But since moving to Port Angeles, she felt weak and had difficulty getting the energy to get out of bed, much less look for work. An examination revealed she needed treatment for serious heart problems and diabetes. The couple had hoped to save money for a deposit on a rental home. How could they save enough money now? In addition to her medications, Richard had to take time off work to drive her to heart specialist appointments in Seattle. Twice she went to Seattle for surgery to have stents put in. They scraped by on Richard’s pay, continuing to live out of suitcases in the cramped motel room. But over the next six months they did the impossible, managing to save $1,100.

Pettit: Claims

Rental home A search led them to a rental home with a landlord willing to allow 8-year-old Cain, their dog and joy of their lives. But they needed another $400 for the $1,500 rental deposit. Marie sought assistance at Housing Resource Center of Clallam County. It was their agent at HRC who suggested trying to partner with Peninsula Housing Authority and the Peninsula Home Fund for the $400. They contacted OlyCAP — nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs, the No. 1 emergency-care agency in Jefferson and Clallam counties — which manages the Home Fund for the PDN. Richard and Marie received a voucher from the Home Fund for $150 and another $250 from the housing authority. Finally, they had enough for the deposit and moved into the home. They’re still not out of

Peninsula Home Fund — a safety net for local residents when there is nowhere else to turn — is seeking contributions for its annual holiday season fundraising campaign that runs from Thanksgiving through Dec. 31. From Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to Sequim and LaPush, the Home Fund is a “hand up, not a handout” for children, teens, families and the elderly to get through an emergency situation. Money from the Home Fund is used for hot meals for seniors in Jefferson and Clallam counties; warm winter coats for kids; home

repairs for a low-income family; needed prescription drugs; dental work; safe, drug-free temporary housing; eyeglasses — the list goes on and on.

3,000 helped Begun in 1989, the Home Fund is supported by Jefferson and Clallam residents. Individuals, couples, families, businesses, churches, service organizations and school groups set a record for contributions in 2012 — $268,137. With heavy demand again this year, the carefully rationed fund is being depleted rapidly. Since Jan. 1, the Home Fund has helped more than 3,000 individuals and households, many with children. As we move into winter, the toughest period of the year, all of the money collected in 2012 is expected to be exhausted by Dec. 31. No money is deducted by the Peninsula Daily News for administration fees or any other overhead. Every penny goes to OlyCAP to help the most vulnerable members of our community.

To delay may mean to forget.

Forks couple help guide equestrians Pair provide hiking trips, trail outings IT’S NOT OFTEN these days one gets a chance to visit and ride with the owners of one of the region’s oldest homesteads. Bear Creek Homestead owners Sherry and Larry Basyinger make their living running a commercial packing and guided horse tours business — with their mountain trail savvy horses and mules — from their Forks home, so I thought I’d offer a brief glimpse into their lives. Basically, the Baysingers are just good, unassuming folks who are always willing to extend a helping hand. Sherry, like me, sees the important role horses can play in the lives of youths and is an active supporter and former leader of Forks 4-H groups. Currently, she’s attempting to dodge raindrops and light snow flurries to help the First Nations 4-H group on the West End learn some round-pen basics.

Round penning Sharing thoughts on working in a round pen, she says, “Round penning tells you as much about people as it does about horses, sometimes more. “I have a lot of empathy for the kids because I can remember what it was like to not have a clue about what the world was about.” Sherry is tireless in her efforts to share her horses with those who are not able to have or ride horses on their own. She actively looks for opportunities to get people involved with the fourlegged joys of her life. At present, she is reaching out to a young girl in Forks who wants to learn about horses. “You take people under your wing, and you teach them to be safe,” Sherry says. She knows what it’s like to grow up horse crazy and without a horse. “I grew up in SeaTac by Seattle, and in the whole area, there were only two horses I could get close to. I would have paid people for the chance to clean up their horse’s manure,” she says with a laugh. When she finally got her own horse, she was still living in the Seattle area and remembers riding in the tunnels under the landing

PENINSULA HORSEPLAY strip at SeattleGriffiths Tacoma Airport. “We rode all over Highway 99 because there was no [Interstate 5],” she says. “I rode down the bed of I-5 before it was paved, when it was all dirt.” One time, they “ran so fast, then my horse fell,” she says with a grimace, grateful the road wasn’t paved yet. Other fond memories include riding on trails that are now major thoroughfares and through city traffic by Des Moines to take the horses swimming in Puget Sound.


The rides “I started taking people on rides because we were running a bed-and-breakfast, and people would look out, see the horses grazing and want to ride,” she says of starting her trail-riding business. “Most of the people who call are over 40, and a good number are in their 70s who had horses when they were younger,” she says. “Now, when they go on vacation, they look for places to go riding.” Admittedly, her profession rarely pays what it costs to run it. This work is more an expression of her generosity and love. Sherry also has some friends who have found that riding alone is not a good idea for them person-


ally, and she will meet them at the trailhead with extra horses so they can ride together. “I like to ride Littleton and the lower part of the Mount Muller Trail. It is safe, not overcrowded and fairly close to home,” she says. In her mid-60s herself, she, too, prefers not to be alone on the trail, having recovered from some truly body-breaking horse accidents. More than that, she says, “it’s about love.” Her pastures are evidence of an open mind-set: Her mounts include some long ears, short legs, spots, broomtails, roached manes; her horse-riding friends include some young ones and some gray-haired,

Love blooms They met in a horsey incident by Ocean Shores one rainy day. Sherry and her high school chum Jana Miniken had trailered out to the Pacific to ride on its shores. They were on their way back from riding to Ocean City when they came upon a few guys trying to get their car out of the wet sand. There were boards scattered about that the boys

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, December 4, 2013 PAGE


When Seahawks win, fishing wins THE END OF salmon season last Saturday was an unexpected surprise to me. It left me in shock. Pat It was the Neal day my universe came crashing down. It seems like it was only yesterday that the season started. Now it is all over. You can lose track of time when you’re fishing for salmon. It’s a theory of relativity thing. A person can go to a job they hate, where one shift seems to last for two days. The same person can start salmon fishing at daylight, fish for what seems like a few hours, then act confused when it seems to be getting dark.

“That’s because the sun went down,” I explain. Call it a coincidence or a guide’s intuition, but I started noticing years ago how it got mighty dark after the sun went down. It’s all part of being a guide, to share the wisdom of years of experience on the river in a way that enables responsible stewardship of the ecosystem as a whole. Without the salmon, my life seemed to have no meaning. The day became a long, dreary exercise that stretched to a bleak horizon with absolutely no possibility of clubbing a fish. My self-esteem issues were in the ditch. My psychologist did not return my calls. I tried the suicide hotline. I got a machine that said my phone call was very important — but they were busy with more important calls. In a final act of desperation, I

sank into what many consider the modern opiate of the masses, Monday night football. I remember hearing a vague rumor out on the river about the Seahawks having a good chance to get into the playoffs, which seemed strange to me. I didn’t even know it was baseball season. It shows what I know about professional sports. All I knew for sure was that as long as Seattle’s beloved Seahawks were winning, people would abandon the river to watch their game on TV. This means that on almost every Sunday, you could have the river to yourself. And if what that famous French philosopher, What’s His Name, said was true, and hell is other fishermen, then Super Bowl Sunday can be a little slice of heaven. If all our football dreams come true, and the Seahawks make it

Peninsula Voices Robb’s job Since all of the uproar concerning the sweetheart job creation for [former Port of Port Angeles Executive Director] Jeff Robb appears to have subsided, has there been any official review of his actual job performance? The Port of Port Angeles commissioners would have to initiate this procedure, so the chance of this being an objective review are slim to none. I’m sure the commissioners wish the whole subject of the circumstances surrounding this issue just would be forgotten by the public. Mr. Robb is fortunate that the port is a government entity, as this employment deal would not be allowed in private business. Private retirement benefit packages specify terms and conditions that must be met when an individual is hired. There is no let’s-make-adeal package to arbitrarily stretch a person’s time of employment to boost


to the Super Bowl, forget about other people fishing the rivers. There will be no one there. It could be one of the best steelhead fishing days of the century. That’s when it hit me. The end of salmon season . . . is . . . the . . . beginning . . . of . . . steelhead . . . season. It just goes to show how fishing can be like life. About the time one boat sinks, another one floats by to pick you up. Steelhead fishing may not be a matter of life and death. It’s probably much more important than that. Steelhead fishing is a lot like salmon fishing, only worse or better depending on your perspective. All I know is the thought of a steelhead swimming up the river without me catching it at least once is disturbing. Maybe it’s because steelhead

fight harder than salmon. That could be because they don’t die after they spawn. Or maybe it’s because steelhead are more intelligent than salmon, or at least on any given day they can be smarter than me. Steelhead-run prediction is an inexact science that combines elements of science, technology and the Ouija board. Now, with the Seahawks winning on Monday night football, we have a new tool to determine the success of this winter’s steelhead run: the NFL. Go Seahawks!

post-retirement benefits. Michael Green, Port Angeles EDITOR’S NOTE: There has been no official review of Robb’s job performance as the port’s director of environmental affairs, and one is not scheduled, said interim Executive Director Ken O’Hollaren, who would initiate and conduct the review. O’Hollaren said Tuesday he meets with Robb “on a very regular basis.” Robb is retiring in July.

Obama’s ‘Munich’? The Obama administration’s disastrous foreign policy continues. We paid the price for British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s 1938 “peace in our time” deal with Adolf Hitler. Now, President Obama is going down the same path. In the Middle East in particular, irresolution is seen as an invitation to attack. Osama bin Laden related how seeing the U.S. abandon Somalia after the

“Blackhawk Down” debacle in Mogadishu emboldened him to plan larger attacks. First President Obama lets al-Qaida murder our

ambassador to Libya without using our military assets in the Mediterranean to intervene. Then, he rattles his

saber, threatening military intervention in Syria, only to back down ignominiously when he sees that he lacks domestic support for

attacking Syria. Now he strikes a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Under the Obama deal, Iran retains the capacity to enrich uranium, abandoning long-standing U.N. Security Council and U.S. insistence that such capacity be eliminated. The important areas of centrifuge manufacturing, nuclear weaponization research and ballistic missile research are not even covered by the Obama deal. Iran gains international legitimacy and access to billions of dollars previously blocked by sanctions in return for unenforceable promises by a regime that has proven it cannot be trusted. When mortal enemies such as Israel and Saudi Arabia publicly agree that Obama’s deal is fatally flawed, it should give us something to think about. A Saudi nuclear bomb, which will be the inevitable consequence of an Iranian one, will not make the world a safer place. Kaj Ahlburg, Port Angeles

Winter prods out mixed emotions BACK IN NOVEMBER of 2009, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee, a Texas Democrat (which has got to be a pretty sticky thing right there), echoed the point that it was funny to call health-care reform rushed, saying “America has been working on providing access to health care for all Americans since the 1930s.” I have often felt the same way about writing. Not that I, for a minute, compare writing, mine or anyone’s, to the crucial issue of health care. I’m just struck by how often there is this misconception of time, how long it takes to accomplish certain things, how slow and arduous hard work really is. For instance, you might think all my thoughts come to me as I write this, and in one sense, they do. In another, they’ve taken all my life to uncover. All that comes to me now is an intensified need to meet my deadline. I’ll say this, though: When I

Out of the corner of my eye, the morning sun creeps across my carpet and everything about the sunlight stirs me. “Spring is next,” my otherness will say, “that’s what.

Clallam rolls out final budget for the new year Commissioners expected to OK it in second hearing BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County commissioners were expected to adopt a 2014 budget Tuesday night. No commissioner objected to the $32.37 million generalfund budget in the first of two public hearings Tuesday morning. The budget eliminates unpaid furlough days and restores a 37.5-hour workweek for most non-emergency-service workers. It uses $388,324 in reserves and includes no new layoffs. “While this budget complies with all laws and county policies, and collects the allowed 1 percent increase in property taxes, which helps to ensure the continuation of all existing county services, it does not address some very compelling requests for additional staff in the prosecutor’s, treasurer’s, assessor’s and director of community development’s offices due to anticipated future revenues being not sufficient to pay for these worthy needs,” County Administrator Jim Jones said.

The three commissioners were to consider a 1 percent increase to the property tax levy for general government — and a 1 percent increase to the county road fund levy — after their second public hearing Tuesday night. Commissioners Mike Chapman and Mike Doherty have said they intended to vote in favor of both levy increases. Commissioner Jim McEntire has said he intended to vote for the road levy but not the property tax levy. A 1 percent increase to the county’s $9.95 million general purpose tax levy would generate $99,506 in revenue. A 1 percent increase to the $6.72 million road fund levy would generate $67,160 in revenue.

Concessions expiring The 2014 budget reflects the expiration of a concession package that the county negotiated with its eight unions in late 2011 that resulted in 32 unpaid furlough days during the past two years. To make up for the loss of

the furlough and increased medical insurance payments, the county is reverting to a standard 37.5-hour workweek for nearly all Fair Labor Standards Act-covered employees and adjusts the salary scale for other workers. Most hourly non-emergency-service workers went from 37.5 hours weekly to a 40-hour schedule in January 2012.

Courthouse hours

She conceded the need for fair trials and adequate representation. “I don’t know where that balance is, but I hope that you will be actively lobbying at the Legislature level to find out what is a rational way to balance justice and adequate representation and the budget,” Turner said. The retrial of double-murderer Darold Stenson, for example, cost the county $995,665 in 2013. “Between the Legislature, the local governments and the courts, we need to find a way to bend the cost curve so that we’re not in a position of having to actually ration justice based upon a finite number of dollars,” McEntire said. “I don’t know where the solution is, but I certainly will be discussing those kind of things in some kind of specific terms with the Legislature. “It’s a big conversation.” The 2014 Clallam County budget is posted with supporting documents on the county’s website, www.

The Clallam County Courthouse will continue to be open Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The general fund for dayto-day operations shows $31.98 million revenue and $32.37 in expenses. The use of reserves to balance the budget leaves $9.61 million in general fund reserves, of which $9.12 million is restricted by county policy. The total Clallam County budget, which includes special revenue, debt service, capital projects and other funds, is $81.21 million in 2014.

2.7% workers’ comp rate increase for ’14 L&I hike to bring in $55 million in additional premiums, agency expects down, depending on recent claims and changes in the frequency and cost of claims in their industry. L&I held public hearings on the proposed rate hike around the state in October. The 2014 rates by industry are at L-Irates.


OLYMPIA — Starting in January, employers in Washington state face an average 2.7 percent hike in workers’ compensation insurance premiums, the first increase in three years, the state Department of Labor and Industries announced this week. The rate hike is part of a plan to ensure predictable rates that benchmark against wage inflation, according to L&I. The agency expects the increase to bring about $55 million in additional premiums next year. At 2.7 percent, the L&I premium increase is an average for all Washington employers. Individual employers could see rates go up or

Only state Washington is the only state where workers contribute a substantial portion of the premiums. Next year, their share will be about 25 percent. The state’s industrial insurance system, the seventh-largest in the United States, provides coverage to about 2.5 million workers and more than 160,000 employers. L&I also oversees workers’ compensation programs that cover an additional 870,000 workers whose employers self-insure. About 100,000 workers file injury claims with L&I each year.

B Golf

Discovery Bay has Chilean owner CHANGES HERALDED BY a switch in ownership are underway at Discovery Bay Golf Course near Port Townsend. Full ownership and control Michael of the historic course is now in Carman the hands of Nicolas Hurtado and his sons, Tomas and Nicolas Jr. The Hurtados had been ownership partners with Michael Asmundson since the purchase of the then-Chevy Chase Golf Course from the Bailey family in 2004. Asmundson, designer of the back “Forest Nine” at Discovery Bay and the Home Course in DuPont, has retired to Phoenix, Ariz. This isn’t news for Discovery Bay members, but I’ve been sitting on it for a little while, waiting for a chance to talk to the Hurtados about their decision to buy out Asmundson’s shares. That won’t happen in this column, but a more in-depth questionand-answer session is planned soon thanks to Discovery Bay Golf Course general manager Randy White. While North Olympic Peninsula golfing denizens deal with a protracted cold snap and forthcoming frost-related late starts, White is down south, playing some golf and enjoying temperatures in the mid80s and even lower 90s. A trip to Florida? Arizona? Palm Desert in California? Nope, try the South American nation of Chile, home of the Hurtado family.

Course improvements White left on Thanksgiving for a two-week trip to meet with the Hurtados, discuss the progress of improvements currently underway and plan for future upgrades to the venerable course. In an email to members, White mentioned the elder Hurtado has been instrumental in building championship golf resorts near Chile’s capital of Santiago, including with the country’s first public course. Since taking full control of Discovery Bay on Aug. 1, the family has invested more than $300,000 in the golf course, with much of those funds going to purchase new equipment, such as a new Toro fairway mower, aerator, a greens mower and a new John Deere ProGator with a Turfco top-dresser attachment. The course’s maintenance shop is being remodeled, and drainage improvements are underway on the seventh and 13th holes. Funds have been budgeted for projects this fall and winter to improve playability on the course, including top-dressing fairways and rough and installation of drainage on fairways and around greens. New tees are being built at the second and ninth holes, and the eighth tee is being doubled in size. All in all, there is much to celebrate and enjoy as we turn towards next year. Discovery Bay will celebrate these new developments at the club’s holiday party Sunday. The event, a potluck dinner and gag gift exchange, will begin with a social hour at 4 p.m., followed by the potluck at 5 p.m. The public is welcome to attend the event, just RSVP to the clubhouse at 360-385-0704 as soon as possible. The party is cosponsored by the Discovery Bay men’s and ladies clubs.

Hawks no doubt are contenders Seattle stakes its claim to being the NFC’s best BY DAVE BOLING MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE

SEATTLE — For those few Seahawks fans who didn’t check online Monday night, flights to New York on the first weekend in February were going for about $300. Book ’em, fans. The Seahawks can’t act this way nor admit it, but they took a giant step toward the Super Bowl that weekend in New York. With a scorched-earth, 34-7 smackdown of the Saints at CenturyLink Field, the Seahawks proved to a national Monday Night Football audience that they’re easily the class of the NFC, if not the entire league. You’ll argue that it’s too early; December is a long, tough month. So many things can happen. But, hey, so many things have happened already, and nothing has slowed this team

a bit. Arguments of this declaration being Next Game premature would be Sunday fair if the vs. 49ers Seahawks at San Francisco had merely defeated the Time: 1:25 p.m. 9-3 New On TV: Ch. 13 Orleans Saints on Monday. But that’s not enough for the emphatic, extravagant Seahawks of 2013. Because this wasn’t a win as much as a demolition. Nobody in the locker room would bite when reporters tried to label this a statement game. But it was very loud and extremely clear nonetheless. Look at the numbers. The Saints were No. 3 in the NFL in offense. Seattle held them to 188 yards. The Saints were No. 2 in the NFL in pass offense. Seattle held them to 144 yards. Drew Brees, among the league’s elite passers, averaged 3.8 yards per passing attempt.

Speculate no Mora: UCLA keeps coach Former Husky inks six-year extension PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES

Pre-Christmas tourney SkyRidge Golf Course in Sequim will present a Pre-Christmas 18-hole Golf Tournament on Saturday. The two-person event will tee off from the green tee boxes, with the first six holes a scramble play format, followed by six holes of better ball and six of aggregate play.

NEAH BAY — It’s pronounced Too-shee. Touchet is one of many Washington city names that you’ll probably say incorrectly (kind of like Sequim) unless you live within an hour or two. Those who have been around 1B 8-man football for the last three decades know how to say it. When the Indians face Neah Bay in the state championship at the Tacoma Dome on Friday at 4 p.m., it will be their ninth 1B title game appearance. That’s four more than any other 1B school. Touchet’s last championship was earned with a 42-36 win over Neah Bay in 1999. The previous year, the Indians won the title by beating Clallam Bay 71-48. In fact, Friday will be the fifth time Touchet has played for a state title against a school from the North Olympic Peninsula. In 1979, the Indians beat Crescent, which was called Joyce at the time, 56-42. The following year, Clallam Bay finished off an undefeated season by blasting Touchet 40-16 in the

championship game. A freshman on the 1980 Clallam Bay team was Tony McCaulley, now Neah Bay’s head coach. McCaulley will be participating in his sixth 1B championship game. He played in two for the Bruins (they lost the 1982 game to LaCrosse-Washtucna), was an assistant when Clallam Bay lost 18-12 to Odessa in 1993 and is leading Neah Bay to its third consecutive 8-man championship game. Only two other schools have made three straight appearances: LaCrosse-Washtucna (2002-05, all wins) and Touchet (1979-81). The Red Devils will be playing in their fifth 1B title game. That ties them for third most along with Clallam Bay, Crescent/Joyce and LaCrosse-Washtucna. If Neah Bay wins Friday, they will be the first North Olympic Peninsula 1B football team to win multiple championships. LaCrosse-Washtucna has the most titles with five (six, counting the 2008 title won by LaCrosse-Washtucna-Kahlotus; eight, counting the two Washtucna won by itself in the 1970s).


UCLA head coach Jim Mora has decided to sign a contract extension rather than become the new coach at the University of Washington.

LOS ANGELES — One day after losing its head coach to a Los Angeles school, the University of Washington was rejected by another coach from the same city. Jim Mora, after a being enticed by Washington, has decided to stay at UCLA. Mora is a former Husky who coached the Seattle Seahawks in 2009. Mora received a six-year contract extension from UCLA, plus promises to increase pay for his assistant coaches and a commitment to improve the program’s facilities. Mora spoke with Washington officials on Monday after Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian was hired by USC. UCLA officials and Mora then discussed what would be required for him to remain in Westwood. Mora signed a five-year,

$11.235-million contract when UCLA hired him in 2012, and he received a one-year, $2.5-million extension a year ago. The sixyear extension will keep him at UCLA through the 2023 season. UCLA has plans to build a $50 million football facility that would include a locker room, weight room and meeting rooms at Spaulding Field, where the team practices.

‘Pursuit of excellence’ “This further commitment the university has made is crucial as we continue in our pursuit of excellence,” Mora said in a statement released by UCLA. “We’ve only just scratched the surface of our potential, and as a Bruin fan, I’d be chomping at the bit just to see what UCLA football is going to do next.” Mora has an 18-8 record in two seasons at UCLA, which includes back-to-back victories over USC. It is the first time the Bruins have won nine or more games in back-to-back seasons since 1997-98. TURN

Sarkisian planning on immediate success at USC THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — Steve Sarkisian confidently strode into the John McKay Center on Tuesday and immediately embraced both the lofty standards set by past Southern California coaches and the sky-high hopes of all Trojans football fans. “We will not shy away from the expectations here,” USC’s new head coach said. “We’re here to win championships. I wouldn’t have taken this job just to come home. ... Rebuilding is not a word around here. Coach O proved that.” A day after hiring Sarkisian away from Washington, USC athletic director Pat Haden formally introduced him as the replacement for Lane Kiffin and interim coach Ed Orgeron, who led the Trojans to a 9-4 regular season. Sarkisian, a Los Angeles-area native, was joined by his wife and three children. His parents sat in the front row at the school where their 39-year-old son was briefly a baseball player before three stints

as an assistant coach under Pete Carroll. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I felt I had to take advantage of,” Sarkisian said. “The timing was right to do this. I think we’re going to do great things, and I couldn’t be more fired up to do it at home in front of my family and friends.” Sarkisian believes he’s better prepared to take over a program of USC’s profile after the last five seasons at Washington, where he went 34-29 and turned a decimated program into a perennial bowl team. He left for the Huskies one year before Carroll bolted for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, and Sarkisian believes the timing worked out to his advantage. “I’ve had five years to learn to be a head football coach,” Sarkisian said. “I don’t know if I would have been ready five years ago. There’s a reason this is the best job in the country. It’s a big job. Today, I feel great about where I’m at as a football coach and a person.” Sarkisian had a three-hour

interview Sunday with Haden, who claimed Sarkisian was the only coach offered the job. Haden called Sarkisian “a proven, successful leader with significant head coaching experience that has built a sustainable program aligned with USC’s tradition.” Orgeron resigned Monday and left behind a roster of confused, weary players. Sarkisian will stay in the wings while offensive coordinator Clay Helton coaches the Trojans in their bowl game later this month, but the new coach knows he’s got plenty of work to do in recruiting and staff hires to solidify the foundation of a national title contender. He also knows he’ll have to smooth hurt feelings about the departure of Orgeron, who earned serious consideration for the fulltime job after going 6-2 with losses to Notre Dame and UCLA. “I understand it stings right now,” said Sarkisian, who recruited more than half of the Trojans’ current roster for USC or Washington. “Over time, it will get better. I’m going to be real

with those guys, and they’ll be real with me.” Only a few players attended Sarkisian’s news conference, although they included quarterback Cody Kessler, who was on the verge of choosing Washington out of high school before USC called — a familiar lament for Sarkisian with the Huskies. Kessler was impressed by Sarkisian’s performance at a hastily called team meeting Monday night, a few hours after Orgeron announced his departure in a tearful, painful gathering. “After the Coach O meeting, guys were freaking out,” Kessler said. “It was unreal. I was really proud of the way (Sarkisian) handled that situation. The guys like me who know him well, we weren’t surprised how he immediately came in and helped guys start to get over it.” Haden confirmed he made strenuous attempts to keep Orgeron on the USC staff, but was rebuffed. The AD referred to Orgeron as “one of the greatest Trojans of them all.”

“I hope he goes somewhere and makes me look like an idiot,” Haden said. Kiffin, who coached alongside Sarkisian for much of their USC tenure, was fired by Haden in late September after a 3-2 start to his fourth season in charge. Although he went 28-15 and had a standout season in 2011, Kiffin had an awful fall from a preseason No. 1 ranking in 2012 and never reached the heights expected by USC’s zealous fans and alumni. His standoffish personality also alienated people used to the folksy, convivial Carroll. Sarkisian is much more in Carroll’s mode, carrying himself with more ease and confidence than Kiffin. He’s also considered a formidable recruiter in the Los Angeles area whose job just got much easier. “A lot of the kids that have committed here, I’ve already got them on my radar,” Sarkisian said. “We’re going to assemble a tremendous staff to make all that happen.”

Peninsula Golf Club’s 22nd Apple Cup Best Ball Tournament last Friday served as a going-away party for longtime head pro/general manger Chris Repass (third from left) and a welcome for new head pro Jacob Lippold (second from left). They were joined by Cedars at Dungeness head pro Garrett Smithson (far left) and PGA Director of Golf/General Manager Bill Shea.

They got together and came up with a team motto, Leave No Doubt, 24/7. On Monday night, they played without injured receivers Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice, and suspended cornerback Walter Thurmond and suspected cornerback Brandon Browner. None of that slowed them down. They made a talented Saints club look like Jacksonville or some other bottom-dweller. Fans and critics suggested that all the distraction would be their undoing. Might they have won by

more than 27 points otherwise? Sherman was asked if the 34-7 win qualified as leaving no doubt. “Uh, yeah, it might qualify,” Sherman said, laughing. “I heard a lot of people picked against us this week. You know, after a while, you get tired of calling them ignorant. Or maybe it’s insanity.” Sherman then flashed his Stanford liberal arts education. “Was it Einstein’s [definition] of insanity . . . doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?” Sherman asked. Yes, picking against them, particularly at CenturyLink, is at least laughable, shortsighted if not quite insane. The Seahawks have left little doubt about that.

NEW ORLEANS — A long night on the field in Seattle got even worse off of it, and now the Saints are operating on a compressed time-frame as they brace for surging Carolina with first place in the NFC South at stake. Forced to stay overnight in Seattle because of a delay of their charter flight, the Saints didn’t get back to New Orleans until after 3 p.m. local time on Tuesday, nearly 12 hours after they had planned to return. Players were sent home to get some rest and an afternoon of film study and conditioning at club headquarters was essentially wiped out. Even before the flight delay, coach Sean Payton expressed concerned about not having his usual Mond ay - t h r o u g h - S a t u r d ay timeframe to prepare for the Panthers, who were able to start their preparations on Monday and will arrive in New Orleans riding an eight-game winning streak. “One of the things that we discussed was just the quick turnaround,” Payton said after Monday night’s loss. “It’s a setback and now you’re on a short week, but we have to make the corrections. We can’t just say it didn’t happen. But that being said, we have to quickly get focused on Carolina.

AP NFL rankings a scramble behind Hawks BY SCHUYLER DIXON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Seattle Seahawks are a clear choice at the top of the AP Pro32 power rankings. The pecking order behind them is much more jumbled. The Seahawks backed up last week’s unanimous No. 1 vote by blowing out New Orleans and knocking the Saints from second to fifth in balloting from the 12-member panel that regularly covers the league. “Pencil in the Seahawks as favorites for their firstever Lombardi Trophy,” wrote Rick Gosselin of The Dallas Morning News. Denver, New England, Carolina and the Saints got second-place votes, with the Broncos finishing 10 points ahead of a third-place tie between the Patriots and Panthers, who have won eight straight games.

New Orleans is another 11 points back in fifth after a 34-7 loss to Seattle. The Panthers visit the Saints on Sunday night. “I can’t drop the Saints because of the Seahawk game,” wrote Pat Kirwan of SiriusXM and CBSSports. com. “Next week the Panther game tells the tale of the Saints.”

Niners move up No. 6 San Francisco switched places with Kansas City after the Chiefs lost to the Broncos for the second time in three weeks. Throw in a loss to San Diego, and Kansas City has lost three straight after a 9-0 start. “Talent issues and a lack of depth at key spots have gotten exposed in Kansas City’s three-game losing streak,” wrote Alex Marvez of Cincinnati, Indianapolis

and Philadelphia rounded out the top 10 after all three won close games Sunday. Detroit jumped over Dallas to No. 11 after the Lions rolled over Green Bay and the Cowboys had a tighter win against Oakland on Thanksgiving. Arizona dropped four spots to 13th after a 24-21 loss to the Eagles. Baltimore and Miami shared the biggest jump of the week at five spots, with the Ravens moving up to No. 14 followed by the Dolphins. The Ravens held off Pittsburgh and the Dolphins dominated the New York Jets. Chicago dropped two spots to 16th, and San Diego fell one to No. 17. The Steelers stayed at No. 18, while New York Giants moved up three spots and the St. Louis Rams slipped three positions to share 19th.

Tennessee at No. 22, followed by the Jets and Buffalo, held similar positions to last week, while Minnesota climbed four spots to No. 25 after beating the Bears in overtime. Cleveland stayed at No. 26 and shared that spot with Tampa Bay, followed by Oakland, Jacksonville and Atlanta. The Jaguars advanced just one spot to 29th after their second straight win and third in the past four following an 0-8 start. Washington dropped three spots to No. 31 after its fourth straight loss, and Houston remained in last place.

UCLA won the Pac-12 South Division in 2012 and finished second to Arizona State this season. Mora was in Northern California on a recruiting trip Monday and Tuesday. He talked to Washington officials on the telephone, then spoke with Guerrero, who had feared a Mora-toWashington domino effect since Lane Kiffin was fired as USC’s coach in September.

Mora was a walk-on defensive back at Washington from 1980-83. He spent the 1984 season as graduate assistant for the Huskies. His father was an assistant coach for the Huskies in the 1970s. According to The Los Angeles Times, Tennessee, Auburn and the Chargers contacted Mora’s representative last season. But the Washington job was different because of Mora’s ties to the university and Seattle.

He caught more games than any player in Mariners history and ended his career with the sixth-highest fielding percentage for a catcher in major league history. Wilson was an All-Star in 1996 and was inducted into the team hall of fame in 2012.

And at the bottom


the Saints did not take off until a little after noon EST. The Saints will return to work Wednesday as they try to bounce back from a 34-7 drubbing that dropped them into a tie with Carolina atop the NFC South at 9-3 and set new marks for futility in the Payton era. The seven points matched the fewest scored by the Saints since Payton became coach in 2006 and the 188 total yards were the fewest in his coaching tenure. “We got our butts smacked around pretty good,” running back Mark Ingram said.“So we’ve got to swallow this and go back to the drawing board.” The good news for the Saints is they’ll be playing at home this weekend, and in prime time, a combination in which they’ve been virtually unbeatable for several seasons. This season, the Saints are 6-0 at home, and their two night games have been blowout wins over Miami and Dallas. But if the Saints want to go to the Super Bowl, they very well may have to go back to Seattle, which is two victories from securing home advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. The loss dropped the Saints to 3-3 outside the Superdome this season, but Drew Brees insists that playing on the road was not an overriding factor in Monday night’s result. “The weather did not play a factor. The noise? It’s loud, yes, it’s tough to communicate ... but I felt like we did a good job.”

Buyers want ‘Made in USA,’ but not the cost Overseas manufacturers still beating U.S. on price BY STEPHANIE CLIFFORD THE NEW YORK TIMES

The designer Nanette Lepore is a cheerleader for New York City’s garment district. Most of her contemporary women’s clothing line, which sells at stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s, is made in New York. Her company occupies six floors in a building on West 35th Street and uses, among other businesses, six nearby sewing factories, a cutting room and even a maker of fabric flowers in the neighborhood. She organizes “Save the Fashion District” rallies, writes about the danger of losing local production and lobbies lawmakers in Washington to support the American fashion industry. “If my only option as a young designer was to make my clothing overseas, I could not have started my business,” she said. Yet Lepore said that when she signed a deal with J.C. Penney for a low-cost clothing line for teenagers — clothing that sells for about one-tenth the price of her higher-end lines — Penney could not afford production in New York. Of the 150 or so items she now has featured on Penney’s website, none are made in this country. “That price point can’t be done here,” Lepore said of lower-end garments. As textile and apparel companies begin shifting more production to the United States, taking advantage of automation and other cost savings, a hard economic truth is emerging: Production of cheaper goods, for which consumers are looking for low prices, is by and large staying overseas, where manufacturers can find less


Walter Meck, CEO of Fessler’s, had to dissolve the company after competition from overseas manufacturers put him out of business. ONLINE . . . ■ Are you willing to pay more for goods made in the U.S.? Take today’s Peninsula Poll at www. expensive manufacturing. Even when consumers are confronted with the human costs of cheap production, like the factory collapse in Bangladesh that killed more than 1,000 garment workers, garment makers say, they show little inclination to pay more for clothes.

Pay a premium Essentially, to buy American is to pay a premium — a reality that is acting as a drag on the nascent manufacturing resurgence in textiles and apparel, while also forcing U.S. companies to focus their American-made efforts on higher-quality goods that fetch higher prices. Last year, Dillard’s, the midtier department store, wanted to promote American-made clothing, accord-

ing to Fessler USA, an apparel maker in eastern Pennsylvania. It turned to Fessler to produce tops. Theirs was a brief relationship. “Almost overnight, they called and said, ‘Made in America just doesn’t sell better than made in Asia, and you can’t beat the price,’” said Walter Meck, Fessler’s chief executive and principal owner. The pattern repeats across retailers. Brooks Brothers’ American-made cashmere sport coats sell for $1,395; comparable imported ones go for $1,098. At Lands’ End, American-made sweatshirts cost $59, while the ones made in Vietnam cost $25.

USA equals quality Two-thirds of Americans said they check labels when shopping to see if they are buying American goods, according to a New York Times poll taken this year. Given the example of a $50 garment made overseas, almost half of respondents

— 46 percent — said they would be willing to pay from $5 to $20 more for a similar garment made in the United States. A majority of consumers, rich and poor, said they believe that American-made products have higher quality than imports, according to the Times survey. Fifty-six percent of those making more than $100,000 said so, as did 67 percent of those making less than $50,000. “With higher-end fashion goods, where it’s made is an identifying source of quality,” said Anthony Dukes, an associate professor of marketing at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. “But at the lower end, I don’t get a sense that people pay too much attention to where it’s made.” He said, however, that attention to where items were manufactured “could catch on and is certainly catching on in food, so things can go in the other direction.”

DETROIT — Detroit is eligible to shed billions in debt in the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history, a judge said Tuesday in a longawaited decision that now shifts the case toward how the city will accomplish that task. Judge Steven Rhodes turned down objections from unions, pension funds and retirees, which, like other creditors, could lose under any plan to solve $18 billion in long-term liabilities. But that plan isn’t on the judge’s desk yet. The issue for Rhodes, who presided over a nine-day trial, was whether Detroit met specific conditions under federal law to stay in bankruptcy court and turn its finances around after years of mismanagement, chronic population loss and collapse of the middle class. The city has argued that it needs bankruptcy protection for the sake of beleaguered residents suffering from poor services such as slow to nonexistent police response, darkened streetlights and erratic garbage pickup — a concern mentioned by the judge during the trial. “This once proud and prosperous city can’t pay its debts. It’s insolvent. It’s eligible for bankruptcy,” Rhodes said in announcing his decision.

Frank & Ernest



DEAR ABBY: I have been with my fiance since 2006. We expected to be married in 2008, but my grandmother died a month before my wedding, and then he was arrested because of charges stemming from a sexual relationship he’d had with a 17-year-old girl he had been counseling. Since then, we have had a daughter, but through it all, there has been cheating, drugs, jail, no job and constant excuses about why our sex life no longer exists. We have also had physical altercations, which he was arrested for. I am no longer happy with this relationship. The only reason I stay is because of our children. I’m only 33 and don’t want to live my life in misery anymore, but I will sacrifice my happiness for my children. I am confused and don’t know what to do. I’m just going through the motions in life. I work full time, coach my son’s soccer team and am living with MS. He does help somewhat, but it would be better if he would get a job. My mother watches my kids while I am working and after they get out of school. He claims because he doesn’t have a driver’s license, he can’t get a job. Really? How many people in this world don’t drive and still have a job? Please give me some advice. I have reached my breaking point. Doing the Best I Can

trip on me. Must I go and have Christmas with my ex like we’re one big happy family? (If we had been happy, we would not have gotten divorced.) What are your thoughts on this? Living in Dysfunction Junction

Dear Living: If you and your ex were married for a long time, I can see why your mother might consider him still part of the family and want to include him. However, out of consideration for your feelings, it should be on a limited basis, not every holiday. (Could she be trying to punish you because she blames you for the divorce?) Because it would make you uncomfortable and your mother knows it, make plans to do something you would enjoy — perhaps a trip out of town to be with friends or to a different climate. And please, don’t feel guilty if you do — regardless of what your sister says.
